Czech Republic 2 Greece 1
. 10 minutes in and Czechs were up 2 nil. Greek defence was re-organized due to suspensions and injuries, and initially was really shaky. I didn't know Katsouranis was able to play central defence :-). Chalkias substituted for Sifakis early, and he did well. Fotakis had a goal called for offside, though he looked to be level. Gekas scored for Greece, thanks in large part to Cech's mistake. Still, after bringing on Mitroglou, the Greeks couldn't break down the Czechs.Poland 1 Russia 1
. There was as much 'action' outside of the stadium as inside
. Always going to be a tense match, Poland especially was feeling the pressure early on. Arshavin started really well, and his free kick lead to Alen Dzagoev heading in for the opening goal. Second half was more animated, Poland pulled back an equaliser through a well struck Błaszczykowski shot. Both sides were going for the win, though it seemed that either team was not willing to take too many risks.
All teams in Group A need a win in their next matches as they all have a mathematical chance of advancing. Should be interesting.
